  1. Re: Win one of three iFi audio xCAN + Meze 99 Classics Silver headphones combos!

    I got to hear one of your small headphone amps on my ZMF Ori with Cocobola shells. Wow, for the price I was blown away. Didn't expect that. I have to sell the Ori's which are one of the best can's...

    Re: AudioQuest Niagra and Storm Power Cable Review

    I look back and probably should have gotten Dragons over Hurricane. Mike told me they are that much better. I heard Mikes MSB set up with Dragons and was BLOWN out of the water by it, lol. I ended...

    Re: The good news is.....and the bad news is.....

    you are going to love the Robin Hoods. I LOVE my William Tell zero/bass as you know. Just amazing cables and cords that Garth is inventing. lol. His new interconnects are going to be special, but...
  4. Re: Advices on Upgrading my Music Server/Streamer?

    The Aurender N10 was a favorite for years (along with their W20). I love the new Innuos servers too, but the best I've ever heard is the one I bought, The Memory Player by Laufer Teknik, Laufer...

    Re: AudioQuest Niagra and Storm Power Cable Review

    I use 1m for all except my Niagara to the wall. That's a 2m as I haven' been able to get an electrician in to install the outlet behind the rack, lol. I honestly have zero issues with length or...

    Re: AudioQuest Niagra and Storm Power Cable Review

    I was told molded plugs are overseas. I wouldn't worry too much about where the cords and cables are made as these are very special. If you do care, then you will want to look at the braided ones. ...

    Re: AudioQuest Niagra and Storm Power Cable Review

    Specialty isn't the right word. I've heard it vs the Hurricane in my system. It possibly had a lower noise floor, but none of us could really tell. To my ears, it didn't seem to be as full in the...

    Re: Kharma DB7S

    Great choices Bob. For me, I'd have those two and the new Vandersteen's in the conversation. Very few in that price range are better. They will sound different, but they all sound differently.
  9. Re: Speaker Cable terminations- spade vs banana vs bare wire?

    That's awesome stuff. Just make sure to keep them clean. I used bare wire for years in my older system, but I also used contact cleaners etc... on a regular basis. I also do the same with my other...
  10. Re: Win one of three iFi audio xCAN + Meze 99 Classics Silver headphones combos!

    Appreciate the opportunity. I have heard your gear many times at the Canjam show. You do make outstanding gear that punches well above your price points. I'm using Empire Ears CIEM Phantom's...

    Re: Kharma DB7S

    It's so hard to go wrong with any of their speakers. Honestly, the Kharma, Vandersteen, Tidal, Harbeth and Rockport are some of the best sounds I've heard. I realize that all of those sound so...
  12. Re: Speaker Cable terminations- spade vs banana vs bare wire?

    Richard Vandersteen constantly auditions connections and has so far found nothing that's as good sounding and easy to keep clean as a teflon screw strip on the speakers using spades. He likes the...

    Re: AudioQuest Niagra and Storm Power Cable Review

    Blue, I have told you that Hurricane source is the way you want to go. Silver Cloud is a specialty type of cord. I'm not the only one who feels this way either I promise you that.

    Re: Robin Hood speaker

    Ok, this is what folks need to know about the AQ cords and cables. You need to burn them in for at least 100 hours to start to enjoy them. Mine took 500 hours or so to really sound close to their...

    I have heard both many times. I personally got the WT bi wire and LOVE them. They are all good, but the WT is very very special. The RH silver is probably better than the regular WT. AQ draws the...

    It's a heck of a lot more than a switch box as we all know. Even the best ever pre amps still add or subtract to the sound. If what you said was true, then it wouldn't matter what preamp you use,...
